That Mural Again [on the Edward Said mural at San Francisco State University]
by Ralph Harrington
The Edward Said mural at San Francisco State University (see earlier post) has been unveiled. Apparently this crass piece of kitsch with its clutter of leadenly literal imagery ‘honors Palestine' and ‘celebrates the struggles of the Palestinian people'. The Party for Socialism and Liberation says so, anyway. Cinnamon Stillwell begs to differ: read her critique at Campus Watch.
A detailed description of the mural can be found here, at this likeable blog. Marvel at how the artists have cleverly symbolized Said's contribution to learning through his books by depicting … his books.Note: Postings in "Campus Watch in the Media" do not necessarily reflect the views of Campus Watch.
